Derek Piotr - Alias Splinters Routine 
VULP-0008 is the latest Vulpiano Records release, Derek Piotr's Alias Splinters Routine. In Derek's own words: "my ALIAS project is completed. for over a year i've toiled,crafting nine tracks,eight of them short and a longer final piece which incorporated my close friends and I uttering my definition for the word ALIAS: an alias, that which is an alternate title for a person or object. another name that denotes a new purpose for a familiar thing. this new title may be the result of decisions or pressures either internal or external, and typically affects the associations or properties of that person or object at least somewhat dramatically. this new title can be a symbol of change or can simply occur because the old name has been issued to a replacement object." I (Marilyn Roxie) even appear in the personnel, reading the definition for "alias" on the 9th track. Derek Piotr is easily one of the most uncompromising artists on Vulpiano thus far, blending field recordings and an array of sound collages, making Alias for a challenging, unique listening experience. Also recorded work under Pi.o.tr - see also related project Derseem (with Carahanni).
